Have you written a book or do you want to write a book?

I actually "re-wrote" my grandfather's autobiography. Did sections of books like Sunshine Almanac and Focus on Florida (where my online writing was used on how to write an essay.) . Listed as writer on six texts by McGraw-Hill.. I have served as a newspaper editor and have done all sorts of magazines, even the National Enquirer.

Have you published anything anywhere?

Once wrote and published a walking guide of West Florida and sold c 2000 copies. Don't want to try that in this economy and lack of small bookstores. I have received royalties for eight books.

Are you writing fiction or non-fiction?

I have some fiction in the file cabinet, but am working on several non-fiction books .. easier to market and promote. I need to put my old stuff in e-book format as a promotion to attract publishers and readers.

Are you in marketing, a literary agent or a publisher?

Not really, but I guess I can say I do marketing via my two websites, two blogs, and Groups -- McGraw-Hill, Prentice-Hall, and Harper recruited me via my online material. Social and Traditional Marketing online are definitely musts.


I'm a semi-retired educator who writes non-fiction and does freelance work as a content editor and writer.
